A quick aside before we launch into today’s post. The yard sales weren’t really biting all that much this weekend—one of the more exciting ones I stopped at was selling a massage table and, uhh, this book to go along with it (making me question what sorts of things went on on that massage table)—but I did want to share this one craigslist ad I found:

Normally I’m lucky if I find a VHS game about horses, or a game about pizza football, and that’s it. Just keep in mind: We’re not even done yet.
